November 5: Thailand’s Kiradech Aphibarnrat overcame a five-shot deficit before posting a flawless five-under-par 66 to share the third round lead with Ireland’s Shane Lowry  at the Turkish Airlines Open.

They will head into the final round of the European Tour event with a two-shot advantage over overnight leader Nicolas Colsaerts of Belgium and Major Championship winners Padraig Harrington and Justin Rose.

Korean-American Daivd Lipsky moved up to a share of 27th after compiling a three-day total of five-under-par 208 while Australia’s Andrew Dodt and Sam Brazel are in tied-37th and tied-42nd place respectively.
